September 13, 2003 in Rochester, WA. I married the love of my life, a man I have been in love with since I was 14 years old. Every year since May 20, 1998, we celebrate another year of us!

am the mom of 4 kids, 3 boys and 1 girl. The girl was not last, she was 3rd. Number 4 was not an "whoops", he was planned. Being a wife and mommy is all I have ever wanted to be.

I am totally gonna grab your boob!


My days start at 5am, with a mad dash to the bathroom, then, while just a second earlier i was about to pee my pants, I now am sitting and waiting because nothing will come out. Then a leap to the medicine cabinet, were I pop my nausea pill, cause yes at 17 weeks and 5 days I still wake up sick as all heck! Isn't it great how when pregnant you can't drink, yet you still wake up everyday with a hungover!? OH YEAH!!!

My day then continues with non stop counting of water bottles, as I have all sorts of digestive problems with this pregnancy resulting in a MUST drink 8/10 bottles of water. By the end of the day I feel like a water logged, water retaining sea cow. Which could some one please tell me, what a water retaining sea cow is and why women who retain water are referred to being one of them?

I decided to access my secret tool, "Google". So I go to the search bar and enter "water retaining sea cow", Urban Dictionary with its vast knowledge pops up with this wonderful description.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Water Retaining Sea Cow

A robustly large female who retains everything, not just water, I mean EVERYTHING! A close relative to the sea donkey and the wombat, the water retaining sea cow moves with a shuffling gait, ambling along to her destination.
"I was walking down the road when this water retaining sea cow cut in front of me at the donut hut!"


-----------------------------------------------------------------

Wow, can I just say how disturbed I was in my reading this! Not only have I from time to time named myself a water retaining sea cow. But, even more unsettling is the joking referral by my own husband to myself as such a thing. Who would invent such a creature, and what sort of troubled alliance would spread the word and help bring familiarity to such an expression? Unsettling I tell you, just plum unsettling!



As my day winds to a close, I begin the ever so determined attempt to find a relaxing and comfortable position to lay in. I have come quite accustomed to laying on my back, which is a HUGE no no in pregnancy. Not to mention makes my feet fall asleep and legs tingle after only minutes of doing so. Stomach sleeping is just annoying and I find the whole kinking of the neck in order to sleep to be quite puzzling, as this position seems to be the general masses approach to sleep. So as a good pregnant lady I take a crack at this "healthy" sleeping on my left side position. Where to begin with my unhappiness with this. First, I am a edge sleeper, but I am also a right side of the bed sleeper, so sleeping on the right side on my left side, I am all of a sudden in the middle of the darn bed. Second, hubby too sleeps on his right side on the left side of the bed and so we then end up almost being on top of each other all night. Not that I don't throughly enjoy sleeping next to my husband, but I do enjoy SOME room! Finally, for some reason sleeping in the middle of the bed on my left side, I toss and turn all night, so my blankets and pillows get all wrapped around me and tangled up and so I wake several times a night to re-adjust and re-organize, and because I am awake and moving, of course, I must pee! AAAHHHH!!


On the bright side, I am no longer looking like a over indulgent bagel lover, and more like a pregnant girl, which does come with some amazing perks... if you can get past random people touching your belly!
So yay for pregnancy and yay till later!
